    Re: Scandal

    Oh Mindy384, so sorry if you felt my comment was directed solely toward you. It was not but if it were I would have quoted your post. I guess some would expect me to apologize for saying the best solution (to complaining about everything one dislikes about a show) is to instead choose another show that is enjoyable. I have never, and will never, understand why people chose to watch fiction and complain about the basic premise behind said fiction. I'm certain it's just me that feels how Fitz and Olivia choose to live out their own fictional episodic television lives has zero impact on how I go about living mine. Even if Fitz and Olivia were people that I knew in real life, what they chose to do wouldn't impact me one bit. If I didn't like them or how they lived their lives, I would simply make the choice to socialize with other people I do like. There's soooooo many people, why would I surround myself with disagreeable ones. I don't like science fiction... I've tried reading it, I've tried watching it, it does nothing for me so I no longer try to get into it even if it's super popular. I don't like anything to do with zombies so I don't watch The Walking Dead. I don't watch it each week and dislike it and go to the TWD board and voice all the dislike about it... I just don't watch it.

    My only suggestion was to choose a show that IS enjoyable. It wasn't a suggestion directly solely to you. It's a suggestion I would make to anyone.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.

    If James did work it out, I am glad Cyrus got what he deserved, that being the pictures!

    Me too regarding Cyrus. I felt zero empathy for him whatsoever. I don't think James worked it out either... although... he knows Cyrus pretty well, so he might have assumed that Cyrus had set it up complete with the photographer waiting to catch the sordid deal. I do doubt though, that Daniel Douglas is in on it.

    Re: Scandal

    There are so many twists and turns in this shows that anything is possible. I initially didn't think James really did anything with the VP's hubby. I thought he figured it out, recalling the comments about the plum v-neck and the bottle of alcohol in a casual setting and assumed there would be a photog hiding in the bushes, but . . . . . in order to pull it off, he'd have to share his suspicions with Daniel Douglas and that would be treading on dangerous ground with Cy, but . . . . James is probably hurt enough in that moment (at being set up to do Cy's dirty work) that he would do just that.

    At this point, I give it a 50-50 chance that the photos show a genuine act.

    Unfortunately I don't think this is the case, but I'm hoping that James has finally had enough, finally attains some self respect and realizes, again, that Cy is playing him...so plays him back, and the photos are a set up against Cy. Since he's being set up to seduce, he knows that there is either a photographer, video camera or a bug recording the events. since it's the VPs house, video and bug probably aren't likely, so there must be a photographer somewhere. Oh...there is that window right there with the curtains open. THAT must be where the photographer is at.

    Count me in too. I fast forward thru these parts. But from what I could gather...she didn't want anything to do with him, and then there's a house [financed by someone who wouldn't miss the funds] and off goes her panties?

    WARNING! I read that Scandal is being preempted tonight by a ballgame in some areas. It may run after the game sometime after midnight. I would be careful if you set your DVR.
